If you would like your contribution to be credited to your name (for tax purposes), please place it in an envelope with your name on it.

The Bless Bennington project: The meditation group at the Unitarian Church is encouraging people in Bennington to take one minute each morning or evening at 9 (or any time it occurs to you) to extend feelings of gratitude, love and blessing to the town of Bennington.

Please use the compost bucket in the kitchen. All food scraps should go into this bucket and then it can then be emptied into the bin outside the kitchen door. Please help our Mother Earth by returning food to the earth!

Sunday School: Bring the children and have a great time with stories, crafts, lunch and more. Call Mary Gerisch at 379-6311 for more information.

The Freezer is Hungry
The freezer can always use more items. When you are making soup, stew, chili, etc., put one extra serving in a container, mark it with the date and put it in the freezer in the hall by the Parish Office. Remember that we try to rotate the food every six months, so it is important to mark the date. Other ideas are a package of hot dogs or hamburger patties and buns bundled together. Thank you to all who put food in the freezer.

Photo/Image Policy for St Peter’s Church:
The Vestry would like folks to re-read the church’s photo policy. Parents have to sign an “opt in” form in order for us to use children’s photos in print and on-line. Adults  have to sign an “opt out” form if they do not want their picture to be published. The policy and forms are on the bulletin board.

If you are Hospitalized
Because of the HIPAA laws, hospitals are not allowed to notify the Church of your admission. Please call the Church to let us know that you have been admitted to the hospital
